Romantic Getaways

With busy lives, there is nothing better than a short break in Tasmania to recharge and reinvigorate.

Tasmania offers a whole host of accommodation and experience options to make the most of a short break or a fly and drive couple’s holiday.

The best thing about holidaying in Tasmania is that you can see so much very easily, even if you are on a budget or a short timeline. Romance, privacy and time together to relax is so important on a couple’s getaway and many of Innkeeper’s properties offer this in spades.

In the northwest of Tasmania why not travel to Stanley and experience the spectacular coastline and a night or two at the Horizon Apartments. Perched on a hill with great views of the coast, town and of course, The Nut, Horizon Apartments offer king beds, double showers and a stunning freestanding bath with views as far as the eye can see.

Cradle Mountain is another beautiful location for romantic walks, fresh air and fireside drinks and dinners. Only 2 hours from Launceston, this Heritage listed National Park offers great experiences or cosy days in doing nothing but reading, being treated at the spa or enjoying a massage. With a range of accommodation options at Cradle Mountain including Cradle Mountain Lodge, this could be a perfect getaway.

On Tasmania’s wild west coast, Strahan is the destination of choice and with a great range of accommodation, it is easy for couples to relax. Franklin Manor is located just out of town, meaning privacy and peace, but within access of facilities. Franklin Manor has 14 guest rooms in a property that dates back to 1896 when it was built for the Harbour Master. Afternoon tea on the verandah or boutique wines from our underground cellar matched with Tasmanian produce for dinner…the options are endless.

Also located in Strahan is Ormiston House. This period B&B has wonderful habourside views matched with turn of the century décor. Situated in meticulously styled gardens you can enjoy every modern convenience in the  historic grandeur of this magnificent property.

If spending time on the east coast, Piermont Retreat offers luxury boutique accommodation just outside Swansea. With incredible views over Great Oyster Bay through to the Hazards of Freycinet’s National Park, you will never be short of scenery to take in. The cottages and spa suites at Piermont offer couples privacy from the rest of the world, an intimate space to unwind and leave your troubles behind you. With tennis courts, a restaurant, outdoor swimming pool and bikes, canoes and bush walking at your fingertips, it makes a great weekend away.

Tidal Waters Resort in St Helens provides resort styled accommodation in a picturesque location on the waterfront. Private balconies allow you sit outside and watch fishing boats come in or just watch the world go by. A king spa room adds a touch of opulence to your stay and the freshest Tasmanian seafood is on offer in the Pelican Restaurant. Only 15 minutes away is the Bay of Fires, a beautiful spot for a romantic stroll along the beach.

In southern Tasmania, how about a premium night or two away in the Lenna Penthouses at Salamanca. These exclusive modern suites set on top of the historic Lenna building are literally on the doorstep of Salamanca and the Hobart waterfront with access to cafes, galleries and the Saturday Salamanca Markets. Enjoy 360 degree views of Hobart with floor to ceiling windows and large sliding doors bringing the outside in. Absolute luxury in the cultural precinct of Hobart.

While an hour and half drive from Hobart, the Lodge at Tarraleah offers a very different luxury getaway for couples. Located high on 600m cliff top, the property offers so much in a 1930’s styled décor, completely refurnished in 2006. Deluxe guest rooms offer king sized beds and some offer fireplaces and private balconies. The stunning view from the cliff top hot tub is something to behold, and in the evening settle back in the Highlander Arms with over 100 whiskeys and single malts on offer.

Enjoying Tasmania as a couple is easy, and with so many different options in so many different parts of the state, the hardest bit is picking a destination!
